This is the second year in a row that Sklar Wilton & Associates has been certified as a Great Place to Work and the second time they have received special recognition from the Great Place to Work® Institute. The GPTW program recognizes a company’s ongoing commitment to creating and growing a positive workplace culture through the development of high-trust workplace cultures. Certification is given to organizations whose employees confirm through detailed feedback that the organization consistently demonstrates the behaviours of a great workplace, meaning they trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with.
To be recognized as a Great Workplace for Women, organizations must have at least 15 female employees and a minimum of 90% of both men and women must indicate that they are treated fairly regardless of their sex.
“For 32 years, we’ve focused our energies on one purpose: to help others succeed. We’ve been obsessed with doing that not only for our clients, but also for our associates,” said Sklar Wilton & Associates Founder, Luke Sklar. “Over time, we learned that real sustainable growth comes from obsessing over everyone we work with, not just our clients. In that regard, this is how we have created thriving businesses for ourselves and our clients.”
“We’re a marketing advisory and research firm so our people – their energy, talent, and experience – are what set us apart from other employers,” said Sarah Liverance, Partner at Sklar Wilton & Associates. “We work hard to hire the best people but the magic is in creating a workplace that people want to contribute to for life. The majority of our associates have been with us for at least ten years and we attribute that to the fact that we all care deeply about each other’s success – personally and professionally. It feels really good to know that we’ve created a sustainable, positive environment for our team.”
